Afternoon Delight: 'Call Me Maybe' Covers

Jimmy Fallon and the Roots join Carly Rae Jepsen for an inspired cover of her mega hit.


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to get back to work. Check back weekdays at 1 p.m. for another one.

Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” is already shaping up to be the song of the summer. And this version she recorded with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots might just be catchier than the original.

And if that isn’t enough, it appears the NPR crew has put together a little cover of its own.
